Certification to FOCUS Standards demonstrates that a business is committed to producing consistently safe, quality, products. FOCUS certified businesses assure the use of safe, quality production methods and a safe work environment. FOCUS certification requirements are based on Current World Health Organization Good Manufacturing Practices, Good Agricultural Practices, Good Laboratory Practices, and FDA, OSHA, FTC, Code of Federal Regulations, global cannabis regulations, and supporting regulatory documents.
The FOCUS certification process is designed to simplify quality and safety management using powerful digital tools and proven processes. Certification includes access to your company portal on our online standards system. Within the system, our Certification Guide will digitally lead your team through the certification preparation process. We integrate standards-based standard operating procedure and training modules directly into the system, giving your team point-and-click access to standards and related SOPs, work instructions, forms, online training courses, training aids and supplementary documents, graphic and photos.
Through the online portal, your team will ensure they are fully prepared for the intensive on-site certification audit. Preparation includes verification and organization of all procedures, training and support documents required on the FOCUS audit checklist.
The FOCUS quality system includes access and notification service from a national cannabis regulatory database. The regulatory system tracks federal, state and local regulations that affect cannabis operations – businesses receive access to all regulations and are notified when regulatory changes affect their operation. The regulatory database is fully searchable and provides a critical resource to remain compliant with rapidly changing laws and regulations.
Currently, FOCUS is pursuing accreditation of its certification process to ISO 17021.
